Kraftwerk - The Man Machine (LP)
A bold new look, sound and concept as Kraftwerk fully realize their clever use of melody and technology over supple processed rhythms predating the rise of European techno and trance. Man Machine is so stunningly ahead of its time that The Model becomes a surprise UK #1 chart-topper three years after the album's initial release. The album has `classic' stamped all over it in time it would acquire the same ageless quality as The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper or The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds.
